Quilting is my typical focus, but one never knows what you might find here.

Star quilt is done
It was more than four years ago that I learned how to do chicken scratch embroidery. A very nice lady from my quilting group shared her knowledge of the old art. Up until she brought in some of her work, I had not seen this technique before.
It probably took me close to a year to finish the blocks. There are 20 blocks and they are 16" square. When I dug the quilt top out about a month ago because of a post I saw online, I decided it was time for me to get busy and quilt it. Before I started the quilting I found a scripture that I wanted to add on the sashing strips. The stars are the only part that is hand stitched. The scripture verse, Proverbs 3:5-6, is machine embroidered.
